Want to boost your Immune System? Improve you Microbiome!
As many of you know, I am a big advocate of gut health. Our microbiome (good and bad bacteria effects everything from our immune system to weight gain to the obvious GI disorders to mental health and chronic disease. Did You Know that
Your GUT houses 70 percent of the cells that make up your immune system.”
Before we make changes in our diet and lifestyle it is imperative to know what we are dealing with. The Thryve test is the best that I know for determining the specific percentages of our gut bacteria. From this data we can figure out what specific foods and supplements we need. Usually this test runs anywhere from $150-$199, but because of COVID-19, it is $60, using the code: “TOGETHER”. Many of my clients have already taken advantage of this AND I am not sure how long this will last, so act fast.
I have extensive training in treating the microbiome as well as interpreting the raw data of these tests once you have the results. Thryve’s interface for the data is not that helpful and is geared more to sell you their probiotic, which may be fine, but you can do so much better with the information you get! I can help you with this. This is probably the most important and inexpensive test out there to improve a wide-range of issues and diseases, as well as just long-term health. Their website is here.
Long story short, if you want to support your overall immune system for COVID-19 and stay strong, this is one of the best ways!
TIP: Did you know that many of the immune enhancers we use work by feeding the good bacteria such as some mushrooms and my favorite for COVID-19, Larch Tree Bark. They are prebiotics! See my article on prebiotics here.
